NATIONAL LEAGUE

PIRATES 4, CUBS 2: Andrew McCutchen had three hits and two RBIs to lead host Pittsburgh past Chicago on a rainy Thursday for the Pirates' fourth straight win.

The Pirates moved a season-best 11 games over .500 with its 11th victory in 13 games.

NOTES

PHILLIES: All-Star second baseman Chase Utley was put on the 15-day disabled list with an oblique strain.

He is batting .272 with seven homers and 25 RBIs. Freddy Galvis has replaced him in the starting lineup.

MARINERS: Slumping catcher Jesus Montero was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma, a year after acquiring him in 2011 trade from the New York Yankees that hasn't panned out. He has 72 hours to join the club.

The 23-year-old Montero is hitting .208 with three home runs and nine RBIs.

YANKEES: Injured first baseman Mark Teixeira could soon start playing in minor league games while pitcher Andy Pettitte, who played catch for the first time since going on the 15-day disabled list, is also working his way back to the majors.

ORIOLES: Right-hander Jake Arrieta was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk and designated right-hander Alex Burnett for assignment on Thursday to clear a roster spot for rookie right-hander Kevin Gausman, the fourth overall pick in the 2012 draft who lost his debut to Toronto.

ROYALS: Struggling reliever Kelvin Herrera was optioned to Triple-A Omaha after going 2-4 with a 4.87 ERA in 19 relief appearances.
